Great Winners Have Great Coaches

John Wooden

LeBron James has one. Rory McIlroy does too. Even Serena Williams believes the reason for her success is…coaching!

It doesn’t matter where you are, from Little League to the highest level of the pros, you cannot gain success by raw talent alone. The Great ones of our time know that it takes continual help from effective coaches to advance to the next step in their professional lives.

As we progressed, I began to see that what started as a book project on an exceptional coach had transformed into a collection of valuable lessons on navigating through the challenges of life.
